SPIN has served over 74,000 families and individuals in Orange County since its inception in 1987.


At Serving People In Need (SPIN), we’re committed to helping the homeless and working poor through quality programs and services centered on building self-sufficiency. We focus on offering a hand up, not a hand out, to help individuals get back on their feet. Join us as we strive to help end homelessness in Orange County.

Our Programs and services

At any given time, a family may find itself in a crisis situation, not have a support system and not know where to turn for help.


SPIN values and relies on our volunteers to help us serve our families and individuals in crisis.
